Thomas Dudley, a market-leading manufacturer of grey iron, ductile iron, ADI and SiMo castings, based in the West Midlands, is delighted to announce the successful transition to the new ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System standard, 20 months ahead of the September 2018 deadline.
The audit process took place January 2017 and the assessment was completed with zero nonconformities effectively transitioning into the new ISO 14001: 2015 standard.
The transition arrives 20 months ahead of the September 2018 deadline and only circa 5% of companies with certification through BSI have made the transition so far.
Thomas Dudley has also successfully completed the transition to the new ISO 9001 Quality Management System standard, again 20 months ahead of schedule.
Anthony Dugmore, Thomas Dudley’s Quality Assurance Manager commented: “This is fantastic news as it conforms with our company values and also presents how advanced and effective our Environmental Management and Quality Systems have become. Being a UK Manufacturer, we have a corporate social responsibility and our accreditation’s to 9001 and 14001 provide customers with the reassurance of knowing they are working with an assured supplier.”
ISO standards provide tools and advice for companies who take pride in delivering the best they can regarding customer satisfaction and product quality.
The standard is based on numerous quality management principles, such as a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continuous improvement.
